We’re always looking for new ways to keep our Boundary Bay Brewery blog interesting and engaging. One of the new ideas we’ve come up with is something we’re calling “Local Connections.” By now, we’re sure you know that supporting local business has always been important to the way we do OUR business and when we realized that we could extend that outlook to our blog as well, we got really excited! There are an incredible number of interesting, unique businesses in our little corner of the Northwest who choose to have Boundary Bay beer on tap (see the complete list here) and we’re starting to showcase them on our blog through video interviews at the establishments themselves.
Our very first episode in the Local Connections series was filmed earlier this month at the Book Fare Cafe, located inside Village Books, right here in Bellingham. The owner, Charles Claassen, was gracious enough to turn over his morning to our video camera and questions…check out what he’s got to say about beer, books and keeping business local:
The Boundary Bay Brewery Book Club met again yesterday and decided to change the meetings to once a month only. The club will meet on the third Sundy of every month at 2 pm and discuss the reading selection of that month over great beer! The reading list posted here on our blog is still correct! Join in on the fun of books and beers!
Yesterday afternoon we had our very first Book Club meeting here at Boundary Bay Brewery. We weren’t sure what the turnout was going to be like and we weren’t really sure exactly how this whole thing would work. Happily, we had about 10 enthusiastic people show up for the book club and they were full of ideas about what they’d like to read and how they want our club to work! Collectively, the group decided that our first book is “The Baron in the Trees” by Italo Calvino. The group will meet every two weeks and deal with one book per month. So, Calvino’s book will be the discussion subject on April 5th and April 19th. However, on April 5th (our next meeting), people in the group are bringing a list of suggestions for what else they’d like to read in this book club. Then, the group will vote on which books they all like and if your book is chosen, you get to lead the discussion(s) that month! We will be notifying our Bellingham Public Library and Village Books (a great local bookstore!) about our book club book choices and they will do everything they can to have a good stock of the books we’re reading. Plus, at Village Books, you can get a 15% discount on the books we’re reading once our club is registered (which should be by the end of this week). Join our book club…we’d love to have you! We’ll see you at 2:00 pm on April 5th…and then every other Sunday after that! Happy Reading.
Do you love books AND brews? We do too! And that’s why Boundary Bay Brewery is staring a book club! Come to our informational meeting on Sunday, March 22nd at 3:00 pm…snacks will be provided. Bring a list of books you want to read and ideas for how you want this group to work. We just want to get a good group of people together who like drinking beer and talking about books. Seriously, it sounds like heaven to me!
